Braves fans, rejoice: May brings two Jewish-themed opportunities to take in a game in Turner Field’s final season.

The Braves host Jewish Heritage Night on Thursday, May 26. Tickets purchased with this package include a Chipper Jones replica jersey and an opportunity to participate in a pregame parade around the field.

“The Braves are always looking to bring the community together, and there is no better place to do it than at a game,” said Braves Vice President of Marketing Adam Zimmerman. “Our group sales department has worked in the past with groups from the Jewish community for separate outings and wanted to create an inclusive night.”

Jewish Heritage Night is one of a series of Braves events focused on a specific community. The Atlanta baseball calendar also includes Asian American Heritage Night, Hispanic Heritage Night, LGBT Night and Heritage Weekend.

Jewish Heritage Night does not include a kosher food stand, but the second Jewish event four days later does. On Memorial Day, Monday, May 30, the Braves, in partnership with the Atlanta Kashruth Commission, host Kosher Day.

The AKC-certified food for sale on the club patio that afternoon includes hot dogs, chips and cookies.
